ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Modern Airline – The Big Takeover - Issue No. 71 by Chuck Foster
Remember the '90s, when awesome concept bands like Man Or Astroman? and Servotron toured constantly and consistently released excellent records? OK, maybe you don't and I'm getting old, but The Modern Airline have that quality. Yes, they wear flight crew uniforms, but they also have strong songs to elevate them above the novelty factor. Their music is jagged and angular neo-wave - think Devo and Missing Persons, maybe early Berlin - with a heavy power-pop edge. It's a lot of fun while being musically competent, balancing silly and serious - something that does not come easily. Their eponymous title track says it all with syncopation, catchy keyboards, and borderline prog guitar lines. Choose The Modern Airline and have one of the best flights of your life.
